Brand new to NJ Uncommon Brewery is definately innovative!! I was able to taste this beer from Main street wine cellars in Madison NJ All Organic from whats inside to the packaging, recyclable 16 oz cans with a green carrying top that keeps the 4 cans together! Very cool and the juice inside is pretty much the most "zingy est" beer Ive ever tasted!

Sampled on 1/1/2012. This Belgian ale pours a slightly cloudy medium orange color from a 16oz can. Medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, peaches and apricots, some apples. A medium to light bodied Belgian style ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Not sue I notice the poppy seeds, except perhaps a touch of herbal bitterness. A light and refreshing beer, that is very easy to drink. There is a touch of dryness at the finish. Would make a nice summer beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, dry and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

mcberko (8723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2011
500mL bottle, pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of poppy seeds, sort of a coconut-y note, bready malts and floral hops. Flavour of poppy seeds upfront, that same coconut-like note, sweet bready malts and feint hops. Nice touch with the poppy seeds, but nothing remarkable here.

Pours bright gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet and sour honey aromas. Thin and sweet with grass and sour honey front to back.

KnutAlbert (6363) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2011
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Clear gold, Beligan yeast aroma. Farily typical Belgian blond. The yeast character is there, sugar/honey, bitterness bordering on sourness in the background. Hard to do this better than Duvel.
